Wow – that’s impressive
Rats never cease to amaze me. Thanks for stopping by and for commenting. 🙂
I didn’t know rats could be litter box trained. That is really cool! I bet that helps keep the mess down a lot. Rats are pawsome! 🙂
Pawsome indeed, Robin! Thanks so much for your comment and for stopping by.♥
That’s impressive. Question – will Henderson go back to his litter box even if he’s not in his cage? Just curious. Love this blog!
Great question! Henderson (and all of my rats) are trained to use paper towels as their bathrooms no matter whether they’re inside their cage or outside. for instance, if I want to visit with my rats on our sofa, I can place paper towels on either end of our sofa and my rats will know to use these paper towels as their “litter boxes” whenever they need a bathroom. Hope this answers your question and thanks for stopping by!
Good to know they are easy to train.
It’s super easy to litter box train pet rats. They’re amazing—for such a small size they really can learn more than we would initially think they could!
